curb your enthusiasm, season finale

I’ll make this short, because I’m working at the moment, and because it’s Sonia’s birthday and this blog shouldn’t be too cluttered on her day.

The finale was terrific, and I liked the season as a whole. I’m not sure which season was the best, but this was a good one. There have been some great season finales … I’m partial to the restaurant opening with the Tourette’s chef, but the final scene of Season 6 is also classic:

I love that they have managed to find a way to keep Leon around. His character, and the way J.B. Smoove plays him, is comedy gold, as I have said more than once.

Mostly, I’m fascinated by the question of why, when I don’t have the patience to stick with even the best sitcoms, when I don’t seem to understand modern film comedy, why do I still love Curb Your Enthusiasm? As far as I am concerned, they are nowhere near the legendary shark, and if Larry David wants to do it, I most definitely will be there for another season. Meanwhile, give Leon his own show!

Grade for finale: A. Grade for season: B+.
